A political candidate hoping to get your vote in next month’s Duluth primary election held a meet and greet Wednesday night.

37-year old Ashlie Castaldo is running for one of two at-large Duluth city council posts open.

Castaldo is a digital marketing director for the center for democratic and environmental rights. She lives in the Piedmont neighborhood and says she’ll be a voice for all Duluthians.

“I would just like to let the public know that I am a bipartisan candidate and I’m not going to be far left, I’m not going to be far right. I want to serve everyone that’s been lost and left behind within the middle. I’m going to go forward approaching it with strategy, data and solutions. And I’m not going to let my personal bias weigh in on how I lead in the future. I want to make sure that we’re putting our city first and the needs of the public first and letting want all the listeners to know that with me, they can rest assured that they’ll have a seat at the table.”

There are two at-large city council posts up for grabs in next month’s primary election. Castaldo is one of eight candidates running for one of them. Four candidates will advance from the August 8th primary to election day on November 7th.
